Wine Review: This pitch black colored Cabernet Sauvignon from the Napa Valley opens with an appealing black currant and dark chocolate bouquet with a hint of moist pipe tobacco. On the palate, this wine is just full bodied, balanced and a little juicy. The flavor profile is a ripe black currant and blueberry with notes of olive and minerality. I also detected hints of oak and plum in the background. The finish is rather dry and its dusty tannins and flavors stick around and last for a very extended period of time. This Cab would pair well with a well-marbled ribeye. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: Opaque, dark ruby color introduces this wine that expresses dark fruit aroma and flavors. With spicy sweet oak complexity, the wine exudes dark fruit such as blackberry, black currant, blueberry and dark cherry. There are nuances of dark chocolate, chocolate berry truffle dusted with cocoa powder, cola, aromatic cedar, cinnamon, clove, graham crackers and a hint of tobacco. The body is very full with a soft entry, coupled with dark cherry/berry flavors that develop from start to finish.
